    There is a difference of approximately 2 pixels. It isn't my top priority at the movement. It will be corrected when more pressing matters have been resolved.

    I can appreciate that

    FYI: It is out on my Lenovo 15 inch screen in Chrome/Chromium. But Firefox is OK.

    OK
    I have 3 machines side by side all with Chromium

    As already stated: The large Desktop screen of 24" is displaying OK
    The smaller 15" and 10" screens have the alignment issue.

    Opera and Firefox both display correctly on all machines

    So maybe the issue is not the forum but the browser?

    Re: Welcome to the upgraded forum!

    thread list view shows truncated titles depending on the web browser window size.

    in explanation:
    the titles would change to multiple lines if they was too long to fit on one line. now they dont change and are cut-off.

    surely this would be a hindrance for a lot of people..

    When on a desktop, it does not hinder me, as the pop-up shows the contents.

    But on a mobile device (a tablet), I have no way to see the pop-up, and so it does hinder me.

    As the topic titles have a maximum length, I suggest that Black Veils is correct; i.e. wrapping to a new line would be helpful.

    Re: Welcome to the upgraded forum!

    I have found a (new) problem with my way to write forums posts. I often go to other web pages, either to look at the original post numbers (for example to check if it is the OP's first post (if only one bean), or to browse for some suitable link to add. When returning, the text in the editing window was still there in the old version of the forum software, but now it is wiped, and I have to re-write it. I try to open new tabs for these tasks, but tend to forget that quite often.

    Is there a possibility to get back the old function, that the edited text is still there, when returning to the editing page? I am referring to the standard editing window, to write a new post 'Reply', the one I am using now.

    Edit: It seems to depend on the browser: The text will stay in Konqueror, but not in Firefox. And the new forum software works better with Firefox, but if I switch browser I will lose this very good feature of Konqueror.

    Anyway, this is a good feature. Maybe someone knows how to enable it in Firefox

    Re: Welcome to the upgraded forum!

    When you type a reply, the forum saves your draft every so often. (I don't know how to force it to save at any point.)

    You'll (briefly) see a yellow notice at the bottom-right of the area.

    When you return to the post (and find it wiped), look for the Restore Auto-Saved Content button at the bottom-left.

    Alternatively, install Lazarus Form Recovery.

    EDIT: Either way, the Manage Attachments gets a little confused if you have attachments (as in this post).

    I don't know how you had it set to do so in vb3 - it certainly wasn't anything to do with the forum software itself.

    Currently it saves every 20 seconds, which is the minimum.

    I've not found a way to force a save.
